Passengers from a Royal Caribbean disabled cruise ship are flying back to Baltimore Tuesday.

A fire cut their journey to the Bahamas short on Monday.

There were 2,200 passengers on board the Grandeur of the Seas.

The ship was off the coast of Florida when the fire began. It burned for two hours and left significant damage, but the ship never lost power. It docked in the Bahamas Monday afternoon with no injuries.

Passengers are being offered a refund and a certificate for a future voyage.

National safety inspectors and the Coast Guard are investigating.
